Droid NAS makes wireless file sharing from or to your Android easy, but you'll need a Mac to use it. The program does not work with Windows, which is a little disappointing. Still, if your computer and your Android aren't normally friends -- and that's possible if you're using a Mac -- this app will help you bring them together without a cable.
This program serves as a wireless bridge for your files. When you connect to it, you can share your files over any Wi-Fi service, letting all of the Macs on that network access them. The app has three preconfigured network styles -- Home, Office and Caf? -- that let you limit what you share on public networks. You can choose to share more or less just by tapping any of the icons in the app's grayscale menu, and you can create more network profiles. You can even connect a profile to one specific network. Sharing downloads and photos happened almost instantly, but music and video files took a little bit longer on some slower Wi-Fi networks. Setup was automatic for us, as Droid NAS found our Wi-Fi, identified our gadget, and even told us how much space was available from the second we activated the app.
The only downfall of this program is that it doesn't work with every computer. Droid NAS is a very easy-to-use and very effective file server that anyone can use. It saves you a lot of the trouble that setting up a file server can be and doesn't sacrifice performance to do so.
Droid NAS allows you to share folders over a Wi-Fi network, making your Android device visible as a Bonjour computer in Finder on your Mac. Turn your phone or tablet into a wireless flash drive with a single tap!Different profiles can be used to quickly choose which folders to share. Assign your home or office Wi-Fi networks to profiles and Droid NAS will auto-select profiles on start.You can additionally share any folder on your device (including external SD cards) or remove unnecessary shares.
